hello everyone.i hope all things good are rolling you're way. me, it's a new day, way hope i know what i want to. wondering if i can even walk tomorrow. i'm somewhere between heaven and hell. the dr's all tell me to get my self together and get done some things have to be done. even if you can't be there. iv'e always thought i had some talent in some areas and i hope i exercised that gift well.i wrote this back about ten years ago it's about a relationship that had run it's course. it's called i put you on the shelf today. i hope you like it and maybe learn something. so, here goes.
i put you on the shelf today
i took all you're cards
all you're letters
all you're pictures
and put them away

there was nothing more i could do
nothing more i could say
all we did was fuss and fight
and get in each others way
so i packed you up 
and put you on the shelf today
for the pictures
the cards and letters
a cardboard would do

but where would i store
the thoughts
the memories
and the love i'd had for you

i found a place in my heart
not too close
but not too far away
in case i ever need a laugh
or a tear on a rainy day

well we were all packed up now
nothing more to do or say 
except good luck and goodbye my love
as we go our own separate ways
then i picked up the box
and put you on the shelf today


i hope you liked this little piece. the key to a relationship
when you can learn to forgive both of you. you will do just fine.
all of you stay cool out there this summer. i'm going to try.if they let me. i liked you all

Ed, I have not seen you for quite a while now and am wondering if you are okay.  I miss our little chats.  They were rarely about politics, just our personal lives, and that was rare on the net.  I met a friend and I miss you.  Irene

when i first started going on the web awhile back say two or three years. i had always been a person of politics. it was a fun, interesting, yet very important part of american life. as it should be.when the web came along though. the communication between the parties exploded with the numbers they could all of a sudden reach.being a loyal liberal democrat of northern ca. i was blown away by the access i had to all kinds of ideas and ideals which i had not had before. then the real fun part for me. was the interaction with really good people with really good ideas. with the balls to stand up for what they believe and say. my favorite person is tina vigilante. now there's a lady with the stones to back up everything she says. after two and a half years ago though. i went through some real changes. mostly with my health and living arrangements. also i just plain got old and sick. since i had been doing this political thing for thirty years or more i decided it was time for me to go. so i said goodbye to all my cyber friends and fellow political junkies and quit following it anymore. well, over the weekend saturday night i think. i saw that a republican debate was going to be broadcast by cbs that night. after what i saw and heard from those bunch of idiots calling themselves presidential candidates. i thought i had died and gone to hell or some place in between anyway. where did these nuts come from. to sit there and listen to what they think this country has fallen to, and how bad everything is. the only thing more laughable were the proposed solutions they came up with to fix then. now listen, i know there are problems in america and always have been. we deal with them. sometimes right sometimes wrong. but we eventually quit babbling at each other and sit down and come to a solution to fix them. what i heard saturday night was hate of you're own party members being spit out by a bunch of idiots and i mean idiots that are full of nothing but hate. no solutions. no answers, no common ground or sense. just hate. this bunch thinks they can take on the likes of hillary clinton or bernie sanders. with that babble i heard saturday night. best of luck to them all. they are sure going to need it. oh yea tina. how have you been. well i hope. now you young ladies such as yourself and katie and lynn h and david and barbara trujillo go bury these little trolls like they need to be disposed of. bless you all.

ED NOOOOO, Buddy I'm so sorry to hear that.  Agent Orange was supposed to help you guys make it in the bush and it ends up screwing you over.  Not right at all.  I'm glad you still seem to have a positive attitude about some of it, friends and what you have accomplished in spite of what happened.

We don't get to talk because I just can't seem to get on when I would like to.  Trying to change that.  Would like to hear more about how you are getting along.  Sounds rough.  Kinda sorry my dad always used that saying about I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw a man with no feet.  He wanted me to know that no matter how bad I felt, someone somewhere was always worse off.  That helped me get through my cancer and other issues.

But enough about what we can't control, how about your neighbor, still having problems? (I think that's what was going on???).  You have to excuse my memory, not what it used to be.  I miss it, if you happen to see it, tell it to head home, I'm needing it.  LOL  Ed, I'm going to leave it at that.  You do what you can to make life what it is, a gift we all have only one chance at.  I'll be praying for the both of us.  Not a religious man, but there are times when you feel that an extra bit won't hurt.  Take care Ed, hopefully I can stay in touch this time.  Later

GOOD EVENING TO EVERYONE IN AMERICA OUT THERE THIS BEAUTIFUL NORCAL VETERANS DAY. I HAVEN'T BEEN ON LINE FOR AWHILE SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME. FIRST I WANT TO THANK EVERY VETERAN IN EVERY WAR THAT WE HAVE EVER HAD TO FIGHT TO KEEP OUR FREEDOM AND WAY OF LIFE INTACT AND SAFE. I AM A VETERAN OF THE VIET NAM WAR MYSELF.I AM ALSO VERY PROUD OF THAT FACT.TO THOSE THAT CHOSE TO DISRESPECT OUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY. I UNDERSTAND. I UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THAT'S  WHAT FREEDOM IS ALL ABOUT. THE ABILITY TO DISAGREE WITHOUT FEAR OF REPRISAL. THE FOUNDING FATHERS GOT IT RIGHT WHEN THEY SET ASIDE ONE DAY A YEAR TO HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES TO INSURE THE REST OF US HAVE THE FREEDOM TO AGREE, DISAGREE ,HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT VIEWS ON EVERYTHING..YET STILL RESPECT THE VIEWS OF OTHERS. THERE ISN'T ONE AMERICAN IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY WHO HASN'T FELT THE PAIN OF LOSING A LOVED ONE TO THIS HORRIBLE THING WE CALL WAR.FROM GREAT AUNT BETTY TO THREE YEAR OLD NEPHEW COREY.FROM GRANDMA JEAN TO UNCLE CARL AND AUNT JEAN.WAR HAS REARED IT'S UGLY HEAD TO US ALL AND HAS TOUCHED US ALL PROFOUNDLY AND ALL THE SADNESS AND TEARS THAT GO ALONG WITH IT. I REMEMBER TALKING WITH MY FATHER JUST BEFORE I LEFT FOR NAM. HE SAID SOMETHING THAT AT THE TIME I DIDN'T GIVE MUCH THOUGHT TO. FOR SOME REASON, LAST WEEK I WAS THINKING ABOUT MY BUDDIES I WAS IN NAM WITH. AND HOW THEY WERE DOIN WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I REMEMBERED THAT TALK WITH MY DAD BEFORE I SHIPPED OUT. MY DAD AND UNCLES WERE ALL DECORATED VETERANS OF WORLD WAR TWO. WHAT HE SAID TO ME WAS THIS. WELL SON, HERE YOU STAND. A STRAPPIN SIX FT 200 LB YOUNG MAN THAT I SHOULD BE SAYING WELL HERE YOU ARE OFF TO COLLEGE AND FINDING YOU'RE OWN WAY IN THE WORLD.INSTEAD I'M STANDING HERE TRYING NOT TO CRY BECAUSE I'M SENDING YOU OFF TO WAR INSTEAD. YOU SEE SON, WHEN YOU'RE GRANDPA WELLS WENT TO WW1 HE THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE THE LAST ONE. THEN CAME ALONG WW2 AND ME AND ALL YOU'RE UNCLES WENT.WE THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE THE LAST ONE.THEN CAME ALONG KOREA AND YOU'RE COUSIN FERMAN THOUGHT THAT ONE WOULD BE THE LAST ONE. HE WENT OVER THERE AND GOT HIMSELF KILLED.NOW, HERE I STAND HERE TALKING TO YOU ABOUT WHAT YOU PROBABLY THINK WILL BE THE LAST ONE ALSO. WELL SON, IV'E GOT SOME BAD NEWS FOR YOU.VIET NAM WON'T BE THE LAST ONE. OR THE ONE AFTER THAT EITHER. WAR COMES ALONG WITH EVERYTHING ELSE. ALL YOU CAN DO IS GO DO YOU'RE JOB THE BEST YOU CAN AND TRY TO COME HOME ALIVE AND NOT TOO DAMAGED TO TO FIX WHAT IT LEAVES YOU WITH. YOU SEE SON. FREEDOM IS VERY EXPENSIVE. IT'S ALSO VERY DEADLY. BUT MORE THAN WORTH THE SACRIFICE. WE ARE AMERICANS. WE ARE THE GREATEST COUNTRY THAT HAS EVER COME ABOUT.AND NO MATTER WHAT THE COST OF FREEDOM IS. AMERICANS WILL MAKE SURE WE HAVE WHATEVER IT TAKES  TO WIN.TO ALL OF THE AUNTS, UNCLES, GRANDPARENTS KIDS  WIVES AND HUSBANDS THAT HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY TOUCHED BY THIS TERRIBLE WORD WE CALL WAR.TODAY IS YOU'RE DAY. YOU'RE DAY TO REMEMBER THOSE THAT GAVE ALL SO THE REST OF US CAN BE FREE.SINCE WE CAN'T SAY THANK YOU PERSONNALLY.PLEASE TELL THEM THANK YOU FOR US. AFTER ALL VETERANS DAY IS REALLY YOU'RE DAY. IT'S YOU'RE DAY TO THEM AND THEIR SACRIFICE FOR ALL OF US.     ED WELLS

okay ladies and gentlemen. there's something here on g+ that i want to bring to everyone's attention. just so there is no misunderstanding about who is saying what. for over two years i have been posting on g+. i have a twin brother. his name is ted wells. i'm ed wells. i am five minutes older than he is. we are also not identical twins. in fact we don't even look like brothers. i have o positive blood he has o neg. what i'm trying to say here is that two people who shared a womb don't have to think alike. about six months ago. i got a call from ted. hadn't spoken to him in years. we got to talking and it came up i was on g+ and had a few followers. the next thing i know, here comes my brother. he is involved with right wing extremists and religious zealots somewhere called seguin texas. now everyone including my brother can say anything they want. i would not in any way infringe on anyone elses rights. i would like to say to everyone that i hope no one gets the two of us mixed up. his beliefs and behavior. i would never condone and i am very much ashamed to have to write this. but i want you all to know i have no nor would i ever enter into a relationship with my brother or the sick fucks he runs with. thanks for listening

being a kid was great
so was being a teenager
life was going to be so challenging
then that dammed old war showed up

the neighborhood changed overnight
a lot of familiar faces weren't there anymore
because they had been taken by the army and marines
instead of learning to play football and even how to dance
you see you might live longer in war
if you know how to fight instead of dance you might just give yourself a better chance

it didn't really matter there at the end anyway
the soldiers didn't know what to do
so they killed themselves in their parents den
it had always been nice in there
you could always be you
and now you even have a new number
after you're name they inscribe the number 22
just so you won't forgrt
what you did to you

hello to all of you out there that may remember me.i was a loyal g+ member until a year or so ago. since that time i have been through some trying times the likes of which i never thought could happen to someone like me. i am currently recovering from my second major heart attack in four years. the last one happened three weeks ago. i was rushed to david grant air force hospital in fairfield ca. located on travis air force base. they tried to operate on me and repair some of the damage that i got, but once inside they found out that my heart is too damaged to repair. i'm 64 now. so that was very hard news totake.they have put together a treatment plan in place for me that might buy me some time and i will follow their plan to the best of my ability and let the cards fall where they will. i want to say a few things about the care i received from the air force this time around. never in my life have i ever been the receipient of such well thought out plans to keep me alive. these young people. from e threes to full bird officers on down to second lts. have i seen such great training and well motivated folks working together like a well oiled machine. the protocols that they follow .the care they give. the training they receive is beyond anything i have ever seen. a little over 40 years ago i was wounded in viet nam and i was treated by both the army and air force at that time. they were great then and they are even better now. if i was still active and got wounded in combat i know that i would be taken care of by the best folks in the world at what they do. and i just want america to know that our wounded are being taken care by the very best the world has to offer. thank you travis air force base david grant hospital. you folks rock and i'm so lucky to have crossed paths with you. i am so lucky.

for some reason. i have ended up writing and giving way to many eulogies in my life. i just seemed to have a nack of being able to lie about some dead sob and make him sound like a saint when i'm done. however there were a few that i thought deserved to have their eulogies read before they pass. because they were that impactfull on the people they crossed paths with when they were alive. it dawned on me that maybe they should hear what we really thought of themit was just a thought at the last funeral i went to. just one of those thoughts that make you go hmmmmmm. right now i'm in the process of losing the best thing in my life. my little dog boo boos. shes starting to have seizures and they are getting more often and getting stronger. i don't think it will be long now. i got boo boos when i rented a house after my heart attack. i gotta tell you. i was so sick. i didn't know if i had the stones to recover or not. then my best friend called me up and said. i sent some chick over to you're place with you're new dog. i told him, i don't want a dog. all i'll do is fall in with with it and somebody will steal her. that would break my heart. tom said too late and hung up on me. about that time some chick that scared me got off her sportster and came down the stairs and knocked. when i opened the door, she reached inside her leather jacket and out came the most beautiful chi  wa  wa. wrong spelling i know. i couldn't have scripted it better. because four months after i got her. someone stole her. it was at that time that i figured out how much i really loved this little dog. i would have looked for her for the rest of my life. after four weeks of hard looking, i was able to find her. and i got her back. i'm 63. a real bachelor. i'm straight, i just never ran into the right one. or maybe too many right ones. anyway here i sat. 63 living alone. recovering from that heart attack. to be honest i didn't care if i made it or not. i didn't have anybody in my life. i spent 9 days in the hospital and no one called or came to see me. all of a sudden there was a reason to get up in the morning. she gave me a reason to get up off my ass. and start making me whole again. since then we have had a ball together. we watch tv together. she has to sleep under the blanket. i'm a realist and this isn't going to end well. this will be the last weekend she will be even coherent. i'm going to spoil her rotten. i'm very comfortable with my manhood. i will tell one and all. that my heart is breaking and iv'e sat here all night crying on and off. i could care less who knows or sees me. i hurt so much. to those who followed the posts during the dognapping. i don't forget how you kept up with the hunt and all the great posts you sent. my little 3 year old little dog and i thank all of you so much.from an old 63 year old man. with tears in his eyes. thanks for reading this.

thanksgiving is over now. christmas is knocking the door. with new years right behind that. you know what that means don't you. come early next year is when the republicans take control of the government. that is also when you're rights will be under assault. anything that interferes with their agenda. whatever that is. is in trouble. these people want to tell you how to live, who to love. who to sleep with if they don't care for the one you're with. go ahead and laugh. it won't be long until a whole bunch of bills will start heading up to the hill that will try to repeal a whole bunch of laws that we obviously take for granted. why because we democrats couldn't be bothered to vote. so lets see what they do with the power we have bestowed upon these tea bags. when this is all over. maybe next time we won't just sleep instead of doing the right thing. which is vote
